Half a million Rohingya refugees have fled the violence in Myanmar and crossed the border to Bangladesh.
The Rohingya Muslims are one of the many ethnic minorities, and represent the largest percentage of Muslims, in Myanmar. With an estimated population of around 1 million in 2017, the majority of Rohingya Muslims live in the Rakhine state.
The Rohingya Muslims have been denied citizenship in Myanmar and were even excluded them from the 2014 census. Since 2015, ‘ethnic cleansing’ has been rampant in the country, forcing them to flee to nearby countries, mainly Bangladesh. The Rohingya crisis has been quoted by the UN as the “world’s fastest-growing refugee crisis”.
With significant expertise in providing emergency medical aid in a crisis zone, Syria Relief will be sending a team of medical doctors, surgeons and pharmacists to help provide emergency medical assistance to the estimated 800, 000 Rohingya who are living in inadequate open-air camps.
